    Dr. King, Ferguson, MO keeps your dream alive!


    The mood  was highly charged. There were a few preachers there trying to calm the people  down. I asked the  older members how many remember Martin Luther King, jr.  Then I  stated...."Buried within each and everyone of us exists a spark of the  divine....Unfortunately, there are all kinds of forces within society that  incite the weed seeds of hatred that strive to disconnect us from those roots  that Dr. King was so connected with.  If we allow the police to incite ús, we  play right into their game...This is what they want, they want to keep us in the  dark. However, if we inspire THEM to weed out the hate with us, then our spirits  our free to rise together and occupy that same dream that Dr. King set before  us." The  protesters immediately re-directed their negativity and then felt that they had  the power to transform things for the better.
